Having never been terribly home-sick nor patriotic, I have recently started missng some things about Norway, not least because I now have a little daughter. One thing I wish she could experience/was part of her life, is going on a proper "blåbærtur" med "termos" and "matpakke". Og å spise bærene med melk og sukker på...

What I miss - HYGGE! Aug 21, 2007

I understand very well what you mean...
I grew up between DK and Italy, but all my traditions are danish..
I miss what we in DK call HYGGE.. it is not just the word that is impossible to translate.. it is also the special danish atmosphere...
And what about the danish savours?icon_frown.gif
Well.. it might be the weather (grey, rainy, cold) that makes me homesick todayicon_smile.gif)
Hygge hygge
